College football rankings: Texas Tech loss will destroy West Virginia's standing in polls

We don't know exactly what to expect when the Week 8 college football rankings come out Sunday, but we know that it won't be pretty for West Virginia, which suffered a terrible blowout loss to Texas Tech Saturday.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon won't go anywhere. No. 3 South Carolina will drop after a loss to No. 9 LSU, with No. 4 Florida likely moving up to No. 3. No. 6 Kansas State will likely move up a bit. No. 13 Oklahoma will get a nice bump after piling up 63 points against No. 15 Texas. So I would think this week's polls will look something like this.

1. Alabama
2. Oregon
3. Florida
4. Kansas State
5. LSU
6. Notre Dame
7. South Carolina
8. Ohio State
9. Oklahoma
10. Oregon State

Note that WVU is nowhere to be found. My guess is that the Mountaineers will be in the teens somewhere. They'll get a chance to jump right back into the top 10 if they can beat Kansas State next week, but obviously, they've got a bunch of defensive kinks to work out before that happens.
